LAHORE

LAHORE

Director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan, who makes his directorial debut with LAHORE, now joins 'the exalted ilk of filmmaking luminaries' such as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, Ridley Scots, Robert Rodriguez, Robert Townsend, Spike Lee, Oliver Stone and David Lynch, whose careers were launched at WorldFest.

LAHORE has won the prestigious Jury award for the Best Feature Film at the 42nd WorldFest International Film Festival, Houston, Texas, where the world premiere of the film was held on April 20.

Breaking the protocol, Mr. Sanjeev Arora, Consul General of India, and Mr. Mohammed Aquil Nadeem, Consul General of Pakistan, attended the screening with their families.

LAHORE is a compelling tale set against the backdrop of competitive sports on the international arena. The story revolves around the potentially portentous lives of two brothers from Rajasthan - one a national kickboxing champion, the other a renowned star cricketer. When fate takes them on a convoluted path that challenges the bedrock of all that they believe to be good and decent in human behaviour, life-changing choices have to be made that will bring either sorrow or absolution. Deep emotions are evident in the movie when interactions between citizens of two nations, which fought three wars, are shown.

The film has a stellar cast comprising of veteran actors like Nafisa Ali, Farouque Shaikh, Ashish Vidyarthi, Nirmal Pandey, Sabyasachi Chakraborthy, Sourav Shukla, Sushant Singh, Kelly Dorji. The newcomer Aanaahad makes his debut with the film.

Other credits include music by M. M. Kreem. The film has been produced by Vivek Khatkar under the banner of Sai Om Films.
